We are creatures of light, let your inner light shine in the darkness. Darkness cannot overcome the light. Even to get this image I had to darken it, but the main subject, the cardinal, still stands out and appears to have an aura around it. If that isn't a sign of light I don't know what is.

"No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.  Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness.  See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. Luke 11:33-35

Taughannock Lower Falls Ithaca NY Farther up the path, one of many level drops. falls02 falls03 This year most of New York State was experiencing a draught and the water tables were down and the level of water coming off the falls was drastically different from when I had visited as a child. It was more spectacular with more water volume. I'm planing on going up to this area in the next couple of weeks to get some snow and ice shots!

This one I'm not quite sure about other than they're Skipper Butterflies! I think the top one is a Sleepy Duskywing but the colors are darker than the one in the book. The bottom one was definitely different and dark in color like the Common Sootywing but I'm not shure on this one either. The image was taken in a large field overrun with dandelions in May of 2012.
